Universal truths neither require nor benefit from sanctuary. Social justice has no need for a “safe space”. Truth need not be sheltered from despotism; it is the antidote. Proactive engagement of conservative ideologues is a sine qua nons for progress. Fleeing to our safe spaces only perpetuates the stereotype of progressive frailty.  Progress is inevitable is without recourse. Per their beliefs, “What then shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). If God is truth then progressives have an indomitable ally. Resist? Yes, but not by seeking refuge.  “Thus the expert in battle moves the enemy, and is not moved by him.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
